Product Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

The P5 is Cervélo’s latest creation, bringing to the world the most advanced and the most aerodynamic triathlon/TT bike possible. Designed using Formula 1-level Computational Fluid Dynamics software (CFD) and proven in the wind tunnel, the P5 is six to 11 watts faster than other so-called “superbikes”.

Fast and fit, this frameset is the most aerodynamic, best-fitting, and best match of stiffness and comfort. it features a BBright™ bottom bracket for ultimate power transfer and ComfortPly™ technology which removes unnecessary material to reduce vibration and improve ride quality. Proven as the fastest, its superiority is also demonstrated in its simplicity. The low-maintenance exclusive hydraulic brake system from Magura is aerodynamically superior and lighter than mechanical brakes, and yet stops on a dime. Designed for speed and versatility, this bike features a variety of custom and intuitive storage solutions combining optimal aero locations with ease of access. Skin surfaces are tuned for each AeroZone™ to optimize airflow conditions, resulting in crucial time savings of ~30 seconds in a 40-kilometer race.

Adopted overnight by all of their top athletes, it already boasts seven Ironman wins within six months, with outrageous records in the bike split. David Zabriskie won his seventh U.S. Time Trial Championship on a P5, and Caroline ”Xena” Steffen won the 2012 Ironman European Championship. The ultimate proof? Ryder Hesjedal’s win at the 2012 Giro d’Italia, with a decisive TT stage resulting in a 17 second overall victory.

  • Frameset: skin surfaces tuned for each AeroZone™ and BBright™ for ultimate power transfer.
  • Aerobar: The integrated Aduro™ aerobar is the world’s fastest and best-fitting aerobar.
  • Brake: Aero by Cervélo, hydraulics by Magura.
  • Storage & Hydration: Designed for speed and versatility.

P5 BRAKING SYSTEM

The low-maintenance P5 brake system is aerodynamically superior to and lighter than any standard caliper or disc brake.  The rear brake of the P5 is hidden below the chainstays under the bottom bracket for ultimate speed.  

The Magura system provides better stopping power and modulation even in wet conditions.  Hydraulics are easy to travel with and use common Magura parts.   

P5 STORAGE AND HYDRATION

The P5 offers multiple storage options, each one specifically positioned to minimize aero drag, so you’re always ready to race.  Cables and battery are completely hidden inside the frame’s HiddenPocket™ for an aero improvement of 10-20 grams, and for easy access and service.  

The P5 features a horizontal standard two-bolt bottle cage between the arms on the aerobar, which we have found to be by far the most aero position.  Two mounting bolts are also incorporated behind the stem to allow for futher aero storage options.  

P5 AERODYNAMICS

Engineering for speed means Cervelo had to take into account more than just the bike frame. They had to consider the three-dimensional space surrounding the bike and rider, including the downstream effects of airflow as the rider moves forward. This aero zone concept changes the whole design approach, and has allowed us to offer their riders a big jump forward in performance as a result.

When Cervelo studied the position of the rider, the various bike components and their downstream effects, there are significant differences in airflow around different areas of the bike. Different flows call for different airfoils: just one foil, used everywhere, is not optimal. Designing a bike with different tube shapes in different zones can offer the athlete a significant speed advantage.

P5 GEOMETRY / FIT

The P5 is not only faster, but it also fits better.  Offering the widest range of adjustability, the P5 will allow you to achieve your optimal riding position.  The frame also incorporates ComfortPly™, and BBright™ to ride comfort and efficiency.
